Much Ado About Nothing (#93)
This was wonderful. I always have a little bit of mixed feelings about this text - I love Beatrice and Benedick but can barely over the lack of connection between Hero and Claudio - but I thought Joss Whedon and his cast and crew did a beautiful job bringing the story to life. Amy Acker sparkles as Beatrice and while I was only “Eh” on Alexis Denisof’s Benedick, Fran Kranz, Sean Maher (!), and Reed Diamond were all amazing. And while Dogberry always bothers me on the page, Nathan Fillion was flawless. Wonderful party scenes (so much booze) and I thought the use of black-and-white was perfect. I definitely recommend checking this one out in theaters this summer and seeing it on DVD after!
